Really a Useful Note: Broadcasting In The United States

Broadcasting In The United States looks like it's intended to be a useful note, except for the (generally uncrosswicked) example list.

Looking at the wicks (10/10 - 100%):

I'm of the opinion that "Station has a call sign" is just chairs, and we have long abandoned TLP for Punny Call Signs: https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/discussion.php?id=mrj911e88jtr2b2ep0tmnw1g

I'm inclined to make this a useful note, and I'll pick up Punny Call Sign to see if that's tropeworthy. Doesn't look like any of the existing usages would fall under that trope though.

Found in 10 articles, excluding discussions.

Since January 1, 2012 this article has brought 533 people to the wiki from non-search engine links.

Health sure is versatile. It's possible to be both light-headed and dim-witted. At the same time, no less.

Yeah, I can see this as a Useful Note.

Definitely a Useful Note, as it isn't a trope nor is it being used as such.

Misspelled trope names dealt with... for now. Moving back to the Understatement project soon?

Yeah, this is Useful Notes material.

Agree with making it a Useful Note.

Useful Notes for sure. I was going to start a TRS thread for this page myself, but was beaten to it.

Punny Call Signs might be tropeworthy though.

Make it a Useful Note. Punny Call Sign might be tropeworthy.

I haven't been that entertained since the stock market crash of 1929!

That's why I was planning to revive that TLP, unless either of you wanted to. I found it while trying to figure out if we had a trope to move the examples on this page to.

Going to begin moving to Useful Notes, as there's plenty of consensus.
